1) Enrolment

I would like to start as soon as possible. When is the next start date?
If you already have a basic understanding of Spanish you can start at any given Monday throughout the year. Please make sure to enrol as early as possible since the groups fill up quickly especially during the summer. If you have not studied Spanish before and you would like to participate in a course for absolute beginners, we offer you the possibility to start every other Monday. We have marked the start dates for courses for absolute beginners in orange in the course calendar.

I would like to start with 2 weeks. Can I extend the course later?
You are free to extend the course at any time. You can start with a two or three weeks course and add on one or more weeks at a later date. The price is the same whether you book the weeks at once or start with one week and extend your course at a later date. The only risk you take is that the group with your level is fully booked. During the high season (June to September) extending the course at short notice is often not possible.

Can I take a break of a week or two during the course and then continue?
If you need to travel and would like to continue the course afterwards, plesae indicate so in your enrolment form. It is generally possible to take a break without paying a surcharge as long as we have a group with your level available upon your return.

Is it possible to start with an intensive course and change to a semi-intensive course or vice versa?
If you initially enrol for an intensive course but choose not to complete the entire period you can change to a semi-intensive course for a surcharge of 30 Euros. However, if you finished the initial period you booked and then prolongue the course, you may choose any other course option we offer without surcharge.

How do I enrol? Do I just fill out the enrolment form and the course is booked?
After you have sent us your enrolment form indicating what type of course and how many weeks you would like to study, we will send you an email confirming your enrolment and the overall costs. You then have the option to book the course bindingly by paying an advance towards to course to the amount of 150 Euros by credit card or bank transfer. If you do not make that payment, we will not warrenty your place.

When do I get my study schedule?
You will receive your timetable at least one week before your course starts if you have not specifically requested a morning or afternoon course.

2) Course

How do you know my level? Which group is good for me?
There is a detailed level test online that will take you between 10-30 minutes to complete depending on your level. This is not a multiple choice test, hence you will not receive your level straight away. It is very important that you take the level test BEFORE your course starts since we cannot guarantee you a placement in the right level otherwise.

How long does it take to complete one level?
Olé’s course programme follows the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, short CEFR, which structures language acquisition in six levels:

A1 = Comienza
A2 = Continúa
B1 = Progresa
B2 = Avanza
C1 = Consolida
C2 = Perfecciona

Each level has a clearly defined grammatical programme that corresponds to one course book with 12 units. Independently of whether you do the Intensive (20 lessons/week) or Semi-Intensive (10 lessons/week) course you will need:

A1 = 5 weeks
A2 = 5 weeks
B1 = 6 weeks
B2 = 7 weeks
C1 = 12 weeks

Will I receive a certificate when I’ve finished the course?
We will provide you with a certificate at the end of your course free of charge. You can either choose to do a test and receive a detailed report on your oral, written and grammatical performance or you can opt for a general certificate wihtout doing a test that indicates your level, the overall hours you attended the course as well as the study period.

If I think the level I’m in is too easy or too difficult, is it possible to switch the levels during the course?
Of course it is possible to change the group if you feel it is either too easy or too difficult. You can always discuss any problems with your teacher and the school’s course coordinator.

Do I need to know English to learn Spanish?
At Olé follow a stricly immersive programme which means that from the frist day of the course there is no other language than Spanish spoken in the class room. Step by step you will learn the vocabulary and the grammar needed to express yourself in Spanish. There are Spanish - Spanish as well as Spanish - English/ French/German/Portuguese etc. dictionaries available for you in our library.

I'm a little worried about the possibility of picking up Catalan, rather than Spanish, while in Barcelona.
Catalunya is officially bilingual and both Spanish and Catalan are spoken here but everyone understands Spanish even though you might hear some people speaking in Catalan in the streets. Barcelona is an incredibly multicultural city, a babelonia where many different cultures and people meet.

How can I receive an internationally recognized certificate that states my level of Spanish?
What the IELTS or TOEFL are for English is the D.E.L.E for Spanish. D.E.L.E stands for “Diploma Español como Lengua Extranjera” (Diplomas of Spanish as a Foreign Language) and it is an official accreditation (accepted worldwide) of the level of fluency and command of the Spanish Language. The D.E.L.E exams are issued by the Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Spanish Government and corrected by the University of Salamanca. More information about the D.E.L.E. is available on the Instituto Cervantes website.
Olé offers D.E.L.E. preparation courses three times a year. Please consult our website on course options for more details.

3) Accommodation

When do I receive the address of the flat?
We will send you the accomodation details once you have booked the course bindingly (which you do by paying an advance of 150 Euros towards the overall course price by banktransfer or credit card).

How far is the flat from the school?
Many of the flats are located within walking distance or two to three bus or metro stops from the school. In general, it will not take you longer than 15 minutes to reach the school by public transport. Whether we can offer you a flat close to the school depends very much how far in advance you book.

We would like to stay in a student flat - is it possible for my friend and I to stay together in a double bed room? How would we arrange this?
It is possible to book a double room for you and your friend as long as you both do a Spanish course at Olé (and book in advance). Just indicate your friend’s name in the commentary field of the enrolment form.

Can I book accomodation without doing a Spanish course?
It is generally not possible to book accomodation wihout doing a Spanish course.

Do the flats have Internet?
All the student flats have Internet. You are also welcome to use computers with Internet access as well as WIFI free of charge at the school from 9am to 7.30pm from Monday to Friday.

Are the student residences shared with students from Spain or international students?
The flats are shared with students from the school but we can also arrange for a room in a Spanish flatshare upon request during the summer months.

Would any host family I stayed with definitely speak Spanish as their first language?
We can guarantee you that the hostfamily will speak Spanish with you.

I have booked accomodation with a host family and half-board. Is it possible to change that second meal from dinner to lunch?
It is not possible to change dinner for lunch since many families work during the day.

What do I need to bring?
Please bring your own towels if you booked a student flat or if you stay with a host family.

4) Cancellations

What happens if I realise after having booked the course and paid the deposit of 150 Euros that I cannot come?
In cases in which we receive the cancellation notice four or more weeks prior to the course start, the client receives a 50% refund of the tuition deposit paid. For cancellations received with less than 4 weeks notice, the deposit is non-refundable. All students who wish to cancel their programme (course and/or accomodations) prior to their arrival should notify Olé Languages in writing by fax, +34 931851519, email , or letter (Olé Languages, Av Mistral 14-16 Local 6, 08015 Barcelona). Cancellations not received by one of the three previously mentioned means will not be accepted. Once the elected Spanish course has begun, the student will not be entitled to any type of refund.

5) Visa

I am coming for longer than 3 months to study in Barcelona and will need a visa. Will I receive a confirmation letter that states that I am enrolled for a Spanish course at Olé to apply for the visa?
Olé requires those who need a letter of confirmation for their visa application to pay 100% of the total course price (course plus accommodation). On receipt of the payment we will issue a document confirming your admission at Olé Languages. This document states that your application at Olé has been successful as well as the number of hours you will study per week and the start and end date of your course. Depending on what the consulate requires, we can either send this document as PDF via e-mail, as fax or by mail.

What happens if my visa application has been declined and I cannot start the course?
The course costs reimbursement is possible only in case of refusal to issue a Spanish visa by our consular offices. If your visa application has been declined, please send us the rejection letter (via e-mail or fax) and we will return the advance payment except 30 Euros which are non-refundable. Please also note that the school does not bear any costs related to money transfers and exchange rate movements as a result of which the relevant banking costs would be deducted from the refundable amount.
